Game 133 Thread: August 29 vs. Padres, 7p

Padres reliever Anthony Bass in Arizona yesterday.

Clayton Kershaw (16-5, 2.51) vs. Mat Latos (6-12, 3.74).

The Battle for Last Place starts tonight, with the Dodgers 12.0 games behind the first-place Diamondbacks, and the Padres 15.0 games behind. The Padres will need a sweep to escape sole occupancy of the NL West basement, with Cy Young candidate Clayton Kershaw (I love typing that) standing in their way. But Padres starter Mat Latos has thrown five straight QualityStart™s, so don't expect a shootout.

Sax's note: If all goes well, I should be covering the game today from the press box. Give a shout out if you're at the Stadium tonight.

DBT heading for the gates. Great game. I guess Ethiers knee is okay. Loney is absolutely on fire. Sax, I'll catch you next time

Steve Sax said...

DSB is playing again. And Jameson Moss is back apparently.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAKE THIS GO AWAY

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

@Sax - Not much, just hanging.

Steve Sax said...

There is no one sitting in Jameson Moss' loge-level section

Dusty Baker said...

@AC

Historically, Dodgers have played one of their final if not the final home game on Mrs Dusty's and my wedding anniversary. We always make it a point to go to the Yard that night. Alas, this year, we're away. Think I can convince the front office to let us in and just sit there for 3 hours?

Dusty Baker said...

7-0 Cubbies in the 9th.

Kid K back out there!

Alex Cora said...

I like the DBT 3rd person reference a la Rickey I am the greatest Henderson.

Dusty Baker said...

Heh, that was a good statement from DBT. Good to have him back around.

Alex Cora said...

@DB. Yeah you could probably get into the park. Heck there aren't any security guards anyways. Just jump th fence.

AC is watching the game and commenting on his iPad.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Kid K...one more strike.

Alex Cora said...

AC likes Kershaw and wants to see him get the complete game.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty needs a glass of wine.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YEAH!

Alex Cora said...

Yeah. Go Blue!

Spank Horst said...

Kershaw!

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

WE DON'T SUCK TONIGHT

Spank Horst said...

Looks like Loney is the belle of the ball.

Josh S. said...

Kid K grits the shit out of it.

Dusty Baker said...

@Assassin

Are you eavesdropping on my conversation with Neeebs' mom?

Alex Cora said...

AC is going to bed. Good night all.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Good night, AC.

Good night, moon.

Dusty Baker said...

Go the fuck to sleep.

Steve Sax said...
